So when I issure:

wget -N -c -np -r -N -l inf -w 5 --limit-rate=200K http://www.mysite.com/files

Why does it download all the files in http://www.mysite.com/other directory?

This is what I meant:

wget -N -c -p -r -N -l inf -w 5 --limit-rate=200K

So, it looks like you changed "-np" to "-p", help me understand.  I tried to look it up and my brain got frazzled.

Hi again,

"-np" is quite correct! It will take care that the current hierarchy is not left, but you must tell wget that "files" is a directory! Else "files" will be considered a regular file whose directory is "/", thus making all the "-np" stuff meaningless.

Use

wget -N -c -p -r -l inf -w 5 --limit-rate=200K  http://www.mysite.com/files/

i.e. with a trailing slash ( / ), so wget can identify "files" as a directory!

Btw. No need to specify "-N" twice!
